Generous win not enough for Ajax

Ajax showed on Sunday, in their match against NEC, that they still can create plenty of scoring opportunities, and possess a strong midfield and solid defence. The 1-4 victory in Nijmegen, however, wasn’t sufficient to dethrone leader FC Twente from first place on the last day of competition. Despite stellar statistics (points, goals), Ajax ended the 2009-2010 season in second place.
